Phase 2, Layering Removed, & Free Character Moves Coming Next Week

Today Kaivax, a Blizzard CM, posted on the official WoW Classic forums the final schedule for the rollout of phase 2.

They are beginning with free character transfers on the 11th in order to minimize queue times for the realms that still have layering enabled due to high populations and mitigate queues.

On Tuesday they will be removing layering on all realms where it is currently enabled. This should give players a couple of days to get an idea of the queue times they can expect if they choose not to transfer their characters to another realm.

On Thursday the remaining items in phase 2 will be released which are the PVP Honor System and World Bosses.

UPDATE:

Blizzard has updated their post to take into consideration faction imbalances when it comes to the free server transfers. The following servers only have faction specific transfers enabled per this current update.

Next week, we will take multiple steps to prepare for the release of the PvP Honor system and World Bosses at 11:00 a.m. PST on Thursday, November 14. Here’s an outline of those steps.

Monday, November 11 – Updates to Free Character Moves**

  • Free Character Moves from all realms to Sul’thraze (Brazil) and Loatheb (Mexico) will be closed at this time.
  • Free Character Moves will no longer be available from Atiesh, Benediction, or Yojamba (Australia).

We strongly suggest that any players planning to use a Free Character Move do so as soon as possible. Free Character Moves may be disabled without warning at any time.

Tuesday, November 12 – All Realms to One Layer
With scheduled weekly maintenance beginning at 7:00 a.m. PST on Tuesday, all WoW Classic realms will be set to a single-layer. We expect some realms listed above to experience long queues after this step. We especially encourage players on Arugal , Faerlina , Herod , and Whitemane to use the Free Character Move service to avoid excessive queues.

Thursday, November 14 – PVP Honor System and World Bosses
At 11:00 a.m. PST on Thursday, the update will occur for all realms in this region. The PvP Honor system will come online, and it will become possible for Azuregos and Kazzak to spawn.

Thank you very much!

I don’t understand why it’s difficult for me to switch character to either different realm or change name. I’m willing to pay real money.
